"THE PLACE OF REST"
Intro: Jeremiah is prophesying the destruction of Babylon, and the return of Israel and Judah to the land. They will ask directions to Zion and will seek to renew their covenant with God. God says, "My people are lost sheep, they have gone astray - they have forgotten their resting place."
